Important note:

Your literature review should be about 1000 words long and it should aim to:

• Set the scene for clear research aims and objectives.
• Include a wide variety of current and relevant academic literature.
• Support your claims and assertions with evidence (i.e. references to other authors’ work).
• Integrate quoted material properly into sentences.
• How a coherent argument, with clear transitions from paragraph to paragraph and section to section.
• Structure the topics you cover strictly into paragraphs that.
• Show clear evidence of your own evaluation and critical analysis

For this exercise it is absolutely essential that you understand issues of plagiarism, the difference between paraphrasing and quoting, and copyright requirements relating to quotes, tables and figures. Your work must be properly referenced; for this course it is very important that you can reference in your text and correctly prepare an end list of references.

You are also strongly advised to look at the way the authors of published articles write and reference their work, and to follow these models as closely as you can.

Remember, work that does not fulfil these requirements will automatically be referred for resubmission.

Based on the letter marking bands (e.g. A, B, C and so forth), Glion graduate skills (e.g. Knowledge, Analysis, Creativity, etc) are used to design, assess and grade student performance. The Academic Grading Policy (section 6.7) for Graduates should also be taken into account when designing and grading assessment as should the following performance bands:


Distinction: 90 and above (A- and above)
Pass: 70 - 74 (C+)
Fail: less that 70 (U, D-, D, D+, C-, C)


Graduate skills are used to calculate the students overall grade based on your graduate skill weightings.
